San Bernardino County fire will use grant to train in hazardous materials

Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, on Wednesday announced $355,148 in federal funding for the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District through the Federal Emergency Management Administration’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Fire Prevention Operations and Safety Program, according to a new release from Aguilar’s office.

 

“California is facing an exceptionally challenging fire season, and we need to do all we can to make sure that our local firefighters have every resource they need,” Aguilar said in the news release.

 

Earlier this year, Aguilar hosted a grant training workshop for local fire departments, which was attended by fire district officials, on best practices for FEMA grant applications, including the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, according to the release.
